Results of the UNDP-EU partnership

More information about UNDP-EU partnership in different thematic areas can be found in the sections Democratic Governance and Peacebuilding, Sustainable Development, and Climate and Disaster Resilience. All of these sections also include concrete results that have been achieved with the support of the partnership.

Success stories of the UNDP-EU partnership from the field can also be found in Our Stories, and results and stories related to the wider partnership of the UN and the EU are documented in the annual UN-EU Partnership Reports. Another source is of course the UNDP Country Office websites.

Below, we list some important, joint multi-year initiatives. Since our partnership covers over 100 countries, and spans over 15 years, it is impossible to present all the results that have been achieved with the support of the UNDP-EU partnership.
